2:40am
all right. before you go shopping or get dressed, we have help to get you dressed.
2:41am
>> it's all about dressing according to your body proportions. bobbie thomas, author of "the power style" says there is no better way to figure out your figure with tape. >> instead of worrying about the 3d body shape, your hips, your boobs, look at your proportions. this is body blocking. this is the x-factor in my book. something you and i talked about is your torso. torso trumps your body shape. my hip bones start here. let's see celebrity silhouettes. we have some pictures of three celebrities i traced. rachel bilson, cameron diaz and katie beckinsdale. you'll notice they are all about the same size but their stomachs, their torso sections have different lengths. hoda, you would think a balanced torso like myself is ideal. it's not. a short torso and long legs is what our society kind of holds
2:42am
up there, models, mannequins. >> i don't think anything ever fits right when you have a short torso. >> belts don't. >> right. >> but they don't on me either because i'm long waisted. >> this is exactly why we are doing this segment before fall shopping. if you want to figure out what you are at home, we have -- >> ridiculous. >> i know. we have a graphic so you can check out what you have. it's about where your rib cage and pelvis have that gap. some of us have more space if you have a long torso. if you're short, you're barely going to get your hands in between your ribs and hipbone. if you're balanced like me, you'll get in between your ribs and hipbone, nuzzle it in there one hand. you'll get in between your ribs and hip bone, one hand. if you get more hands, you're longer. hoda, you can probably only get a few fingers in there. what i wanted to show you is we have a graphic, hoda that you're our star in. someone with a short torso. tips when you go shopping is all about where you cut yourself off. you want to make sure even though ideally you want those long legs, avoid tucking in tops.
2:43am
let it hang out. also for you, which i can't imagine ever doing, cropped pants and showing an ankle strap or something is good because it will actually crop your legs and balance you out. >> why would you want to balance your long, gorgeous legs? she's got the legs everybody wants. >> it's all about balance. okay, now, if you have a long torso at home and saying you have short legs, that's a great thing sometimes. you can play around with accessories. but something that you should see in this graphic, maggie, who is in my office, she had -- again, she is the opposite where you really don't want to leave something untucked. you want to tuck it in to elongate the legs. hoda, a trick for you outside of that is just using a belt like you see on this mannequin. cheat the belt so it is a lower hip belt. like what you're doing today is really great because you have a really thin belt. and that thin belt is great. kathie, i didn't leave you out.
2:44am
>> no, leave me out. >> i have a graphic of you, as well. even if you're balanced, you want to be careful of fashions you see this fall that are shape-shifting. so your boots, you know, there's a lot of longer boots out there, but be careful. you want to make sure you elongate your leg by getting it right at the point underneath your knee unless you have longer legs, then a taller boot, hoda, you would do well with the longer boot. >> those are not my boots. >> no, i photo many shopped you. >> i like that whole outfit. >> i do, too. >> i don't look anywhere near my age. >> not at all. >> we love our bobbie girl. >> love you. thank you. >> by the way, this past weekend went to poughkeepsie. >> yes, she did. >> did you ever have trouble finding the perfect make-up product? who needs make-up when you look like i do? >> of course. award-winning cosmetics. it doesn't even say that. you just said that right after this.
